What is parity? This category is designed just for features that exist but work one way on one platform, and another way on a different platform. Bugs are not parity!

    I really want to see the glowing effect in Bedrock too, not just in the Java Edition

    An added note: this seems especially relevant considering that in recent snapshots, bells now apply the Glowing effect to nearby pillagers.

    I would really like to see this added in Bedrock, especially with the new Illager raids. Ringing the bell gives Java players the ability to see all the remaining Pillagers so they can kill them easier. But in Bedrock it can be a little difficult finding the remaining ones without the glowing effect.

    On my private server, we are all friends and we do not have "PVP" unless I say something smart and my wife swats me. In Java, I have a permanent "set all players glowing" effect. Bedrock? No can do! Please get Java parity on effects.

    Problem:

    Sadly this feature is currently impossible with the bedrock engine. The reason is that the way it renders the world. The problem is whatever you are not looking at (whether it is behind you or a block) is not rendered. The entire point of the Glow effect is that you can see things behind blocks. If it is not rendered then it cannot make the Glow effect. (This was made so lower-end phones could run the game)

    Solution:

    Hopefully, the new engine (The Render Dragon) renders blocks and entities even if you are not looking at them so we can have Spectral Arrows and the Glow effect.

    Yes, now that spectral arrows generate naturally in Bastion Remnants, Bedrock should get the same loot tables with spectral arrows as well. Spectral arrows also seem to be very common in Bastion chests on Java as well, so it would be much different without them.

    Yes, I would love this idea. Right now, Java (only) can find spectral arrows in bastions and us bedrock players can't.

    Bedrock edition needs this parity, glowing effect was awesome and in the latest java snapshot, they include it in piglin bartering items.

    Please bring these to all versions of the game. I think spectral arrows are so cool.

    I often struggle to find the remaining pillagers during raids (they find their way into caves or inside ponds). The glowing effect given by ringing the bells is much needed so that those raids can finish.

    With the addition of Glowing effects, we can finally see some Raid parity also.
    The only reason why Raids in Bedrock is different from Java because of the absence of glowing effect

    This will be convenient especially on hunting remaining illagers in a raid

    Why have they not considered this yet! As a bedrock player myself, I have wanted to get these arrows in my game for all the time I’ve played! This is a amazing idea and I think it should be added to bedrock for sure.

    Edit: I just read the post about why they were not added to bedrock, (because the game does not render behind blocks, and the point of the effect is to see behind them) but I hope there might be some way to get around this :(

    There must be a solution. I hate to say but there must be a separation between phones and next Gen consoles!
